COLLIDE Theatrical Dance Company
Start: Mar 31, 2018 - End: Dec 10, 2017
COLLIDE is a performing arts company dedicated to creating new works that are rooted in classical Musical Theater Jazz Dance and inspired by the influences of Jerome Robbins and Bob Fosse. Our Company adheres to creating original work, maintaining low and accessible ticket prices and using live musicians for every production.
- We create ORIGINAL jazz dance musicals that employ professional dancers, actors, vocalists and musicians. We rely on volunteer technical staff and equipment donations so that 75% of our budget can go toward paying our artists competitive wages.
- Our PARENT IN THE ARTS program provides FREE onsite childcare to all COLLIDE Artists during rehearsals and performances. We are the ONLY Company in MN with this unique set up.
- We adhere to having a FAMILY-FRIENDLY option for all of our productions in an effort to inspire future theater patrons, performers and aficionados.
- We employ LIVE MUSICIANS for every COLLIDE performance…and you will never see them “in the pit!”
Your donation will help us make the journey from the page to the stage a reality. Every contribution will assist us to paying our artists, designers and artistic staff. In addition…your help will go toward helping us rent the theater, pay for rehearsal space, purchase props and costumes, create a set, and cover marketing, insurance, music rights, sound equipment, and more! Our ticket revenues only pay for 1/4 of our overhead costs…and it is people like YOU who help make new art a possibility in our community.
